What Is Immunocal®?

July 26,2021

It is a bio-active whey protein isolate which shares many of the same immune promoting and enhancing properties of mother’s milk. It contains un-denatured precursors or building blocks for our body to manufacture Glutathione (GSH). GSH is our body’s own Master Antioxidant, Immune System Enhancer and Detoxifier (AID) and is found in every tissue and cells in our body.

As an Antioxidant, it reduces the other exogenous antioxidant such as vitamins C and E to their active states to achieve maximum antioxidant effect. As an Immune-system enhancer, our defense cells lymphocytes are dependent on GSH for their proper function and replication (Immunology 61:503-508, 1987). As a Detoxifier, GSH detoxifies pollutants and radiation damage and the highest level of GSH is found in our liver. GSH is ineffective when taken orally as it will be broken down during digestion and eliminated.

The only natural and effective way for our own cells to manufacture GSH is via a precursor. Immunocal® contains bioactive cystine (bonded cysteine) which converts to cysteine when ingested and is responsible for the biological activity of GSH. In the cell, cysteine will combine with glycine and glutamate to form GSH.

GSH is high when we are young and healthy. As we age, GSH levels in our body decreases. “We literally cannot survive without this miraculous antioxidant.” – Dr. Earl Mindell in his book ‘What You Should Know About the Super Antioxidant Miracle’.
